Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

State of the art computer graphics reveal precisely how mankind's last days could play out as the observations of top scientists detail seven of the deadliest threats to humanity in a sobering documentary that asks if mankind is advanced enough to survive a world shattering cataclysm. From massive black holes to malevolent robots, deadly asteroid impacts, and unstoppable plagues - life on planet Earth could suddenly be wiped out by any number of disasters both natural and man made. While some could simply render us extinct as a species, others may prove powerful enough to actually destroy the entire planet. In this release, the world's greatest thinkers gaze into the deepest reaches of space and attempt to unlock the inner universe of DNA in order to ponder how likely each of these events are to occur and gauge our prospects for survival should the ultimate nightmare become a terrifying reality.
